Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
A Texas Ranger (Rex Lease) searches for the killer of his sister in this cheap and often incomprehensible Western produced by Harry S. Webb and Flora E. Douglas, the latter being one of Hollywood's few women executives at the time. In tracking down the mysterious killer -- a villain known only as The Tiger (Jack Mower) -- the ranger is ably assisted by his faithful dog, King (Muro, a low-budget Rin Tin Tin "wannabe"). The Lone Trail was a re-edited feature version of a 1931 serial, The Sign of the Wolf. Webb and Douglas, in an attempt to squeeze every dime possible of out the footage, recycled it once again for the 1936 serial, Crown and Skull.
